Poor service and onsite facilities. Nice room
Whilst the location of this hotel is great and the room was clean and neat I wouldn’t go again. Coffee machine in the room didn’t work. Neither did the bedside lamp. Tried to report it but reception was closed and no one answered the bell. We decided based on the advice from reception when we originally checked in to go for dinner in the restaurant. Checked the menu and there was a good range. Checked into the restaurant and was going to speak to the receptionist that booked me in but she was too busy on her laptop behind the bar. Went up to the restaurant to be told that they only have one chef. 75% of the menu was gone and other items sold out. As vegan/vegetarians there was only 2 meals for us. My partner is allergic to mushrooms so could have it and the second meal wasn’t vegan so she couldn’t eat it. Ended up in us leaving and having to drive 30 miles to find somewhere for dinner. Then the alarms either were being set or went off around 2330 which was very loud in such a calm place. Next morning go for the inclusive breakfast to be told again that they don’t have everything that’s part of the menu. Went to check out and no staff so not even able to address the issues. Poor service. Payed good money for a romantic night away but it was a proper downer.
